Historically, the Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias (FARs) of Cuba have held an important role since 1959. In this paper, we offer some ideas regarding the FAR political and economic power in Cuba’s new political scenario. This paper explores the role of FAR, the Cuban institution that is less transparent and most difficult to analyze. It discusses its economic activities and its relationship with civil society, and offers possible scenarios for the post Castro era. The article presents these ideas which have emerged after three visits to Cuba where we carried out 53 interviews in Havana, Santa Clara, and Cienfuegos.
